Dr. No Scene 1

Scene 1

Scene 1

  • No, you're not having a fever dream: The psychedelic opening actually does feature a rainbow-silhouetted samba number, lots of multi-colored dots, and three men walking with canes to the tune of "Three Blind Mice"
  • The three blind men wander the streets of Kingston Jamaica.
  • The men stop at the Queen's Club, and they seem to realize where they are even though the sign is not in Braille.
  • At the Queen's Club—not a drag queen bar—four old white men gamble at cards.
  • One of the men leaves the card game and drops a coin into the blind man's tin cup.
  • But he's not blind after all. He has quite good eyesight, in fact, which he uses to shoot the man dead, load him into the back of a car, and speed away. Whoa.
  • A woman talks into a secret radio hidden behind a fake bookshelf.
  • The three blind men break in and shoot her dead, too.
  • They rifle through her files and recover a document labeled DOCTOR NO. Was it under "D" for Doctor, or "N" for No?
